I’ve been dreading this election season because of the state of our country’s politics. These days I don’t know where I live anymore; the country certainly doesn’t feel like the same United States of America. Republicans want to cut way back on social programs that service the disenfranchised and on public education while steadfastly refusing to eliminate the tax breaks created by President George Bush that were set to expire 2 years ago. Hell no to marginal tax increases that will only affect the top 1% of the wealthy in our land. Who are these people?
This commentary published in my daily newspaper is a rant on just one piece of the puzzle. Feel free to comment.
